We stayed at the Riviera Beachotel for 7 days from 8th to 15th June. In summary I would say this hotel is a very smart boutique style hotel with a high standard of fixtures and fittings, in very good decorative order. The staff are nice, friendly and helpful. These high standards extend to the food provided on our full board package.
There is a dress code (according to the hotel) for dinner that unfortunately is not policed, so you have couples dressed in nice smart evening wear sitting alongside people in vests, shorts and flip-flops. This lets the restaurant down at dinner times.
The rooms are not large but are adequate, we had a twin room, there are double rooms (same size) in the hotel also. Nice to have a fridge in the room, other nice things were plenty of plug sockets, bathroom mirror and shaving mirror, lovely large walk-in shower and a bidet.
The large sliding wardrobe doors are impossible to close quietly and you will hear neighbouring doors banging - not a problem unless it is a 4 in the morning. The safe is large and plenty big enough to take a large laptop. Even room numbers get the sun in the morning till 2pm, and odd numbers from mid afternoon and evening.
Free wifi is provided throughout the hotel, it is slow but usable although some areas had a stronger signal than others.
The limiting factor for us with this hotel was the number of sunbeds and limited sun available to those beds. The space permits only around 65 sunbeds and some chairs, and at any given time, no more than 50% of these are in the sun. Obviously real estate is at a premium in Benidorm and the outside space at the Riviera reflects this. Remember that when the hotel is full there is likely to be over 180 guests, if only half like to be around the pool at any given time, there will be a lot of disappointed folk and only 30 or 40 lucky people in the sun.
However if the beach is your thing, being only a 5 min walk away, this hotel would be just about perfect.
